Never knew WHAT the hell Jerry sang on "Bertha" when it came to "...ran into a rainstorm--I ducked back into a ?????..." until I found out he ducked back into a "BAR DOOR." Good for him.

Most mis-heard lyric of all, though, by the largest number of 'heads, has got to be from "Lost Sailor". For years people went nuts when Bobby would sing what they (myself included) THOUGHT was "...where's the Dark Star?", when of course, it's "where's the DOG star." Maybe hard-core astronomy buffs knew, but the rest of us really did want to know "where IS that Dark Star?"...I mean, c'mon, boys--we're ready!

still wrong....it's Navato, check it out >>

Ran into a rainstorm, i ducked back into novato.
It's all night pourin', pourin', pourin',
Lord but not a drop on me.
Test me, test me,
Test me, test me, test me,
Why don't you arrest me?
Throw me in to the jailhouse,
Lord until the sun goes down, 'till it goes down.

which may only be obvious to SF Bay Area fans who know of the area city of Navato, Ca
